Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
This survey course addresses reading using a developmental stage approach. Participants learn about reading development (characteristics, assessment, and instruction) from the most emergent stage through adulthood. In addition, course participants learn about literacy from a multitude of perspectives - historical perspectives, second language learners, and students with reading disabilities. Educators will gain practical knowledge to help them understand the literacy level of all students.
